3 essential Veronese wines to try when you’re in town

You might come to Verona for several reasons. It is one of the most romantic cities in the world, home to Romeo and Juliet’s love story. It is also unique in its ancient beauty and some even say it’s magical. You might also want to come for our football teams—although, granted, we are not precisely famous for that (go Chievo!) But what we can all agree on is that Verona, and the Veneto region, is a privileged producer of some of the finest wines in the country. So today we bring you 3 essential Veronese wines you should try before you leave.

1. Valpolicella. East of Lake Garda, the Valpolicella region has been producing wine since the Roman age. And no doubt why: this red wine is delicious! Experts say it’s fruity with notes of cherry and it is easy to pair with food. You will find it in most restaurants and wine bars of the region.

2. Amarone. If wines had a prom king, Amarone would get the crown every year. It has become one of the most appreciated Italian wines for its rare making technique. Wineries use the same grapes as for the Valpolicella wines, but Amarone grapes are left to dry, ferment and age for at least two years before bottling the wine. Word from the experts is that it’s structured, powerful, elegant and smooth, with high alcohol content. A must-drink!

3. Soave. In the prom metaphor, Soave would always be Amarone’s queen. It is one of the most consumed white wines in Italy and the most exported internationally. Soave has been produced in the region of the same name, at the East of Verona, from the middle ages. Experts say it is light, dry and savory and it is very common to drink it as an aperitif.

A one day’s trip: Cittadella

Cittadella is the perfect location for a short trip, especially if you are interested in Medieval History, and want to walk around well-preserved fortifications. This town is the only one in the region of Veneto that allows visitors to walk nearly 1.5 kilometers of medieval defensive walls, and watch a very nice view of the city.

The ring of walls that runs around the city in the manner of an oval is 1461 meters and about 16 meters high, including 32 towers and four main entrances.  There are protective conduits by the borders, as well as drawbridges that could be lowered to pass through the gates.

Also, you can get a good perspective of the Middle Ages legacy by visiting the museums surrounding the wall, such as the Captain’s house, which has a small collection of armor of that period, as well as frescoes from the Malatesta family.

After walking through the walls, go around the city and drop by some of the amazing art galleries that you can find in Cittadella. Besides, you can’t miss a visit to the former governor’s residence, Palazzo Pretorio, which is now a foundation that hosts national art exhibitions.

Cittadella offers you art, history and an impressive shopping scene; make sure you plan a get-away day trip to this beautiful city. And, after such an amazing day, Palazzo Victoria will be waiting for you, in the beating heart of Verona.

Day Trip: Villa Dionisi

One of the many wonders of Verona is the variety of landscapes it offers. Whether you’re a mountain person, a sea lover or you’re the urban type, you will never be bored in this town. Now that autumn is coming, you might be in the mood for some quiet countryside retreat to rest from the hectic city life. Our getaway suggestion for the weekend is one of the most beautiful villas in the region: Villa Dionisi.

Just a 20 minute drive from Verona, Villa Dionisi is surrounded by stunning gardens and nature. It is a typical Venetian villa from the 18th century, which belonged to the Dionisi family. The Dionisis were rich nobles who decided to exploit the cultivation of rice and built their family mansion in Cerea to have a tighter control over the lands. The result was a magnificent villa, turned into a museum, in which you will have the opportunity to witness wonderful frescoes and tapestries. You will be amazed at the paintings by Veronese artist Giuseppe Montanari and decorator Nicola Marcola. The alcove in particular is an astonishing example of interior design. Also make sure you don’t miss the library and the portico!

You can visit Villa Dionisi for free every Friday, from 9am to 12pm. After getting all the fresh air you need, come back to the heart of Verona at Palazzo Victoria!

Day Trip: The Dolomites

We consider ourselves fortunate people here in Verona. We live in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Italy, but we’re also so close to the most beautiful natural settings. We have thought that we’d share a little bit of our local knowledge with you and today, we bring you a day trip proposal if you want to change the busy city streets for a more relaxed spot. The place to go is the Dolomites.

North from the Veneto region, mostly in Belluno but expanding to other provinces, the Dolomites are a part of the eastern Alps. Magical little villages and breath-taking landscapes will bring you here, but you’ll want to come back for the many activities and resources it offers:

1. Natural parks. Make sure you visit at least one of the ten natural parks that comprise the Dolomites. The Parco Nazionale delle Dolomiti Bellunese is the closest to Verona and one of the most beautiful.

2. Lakes. At the feet of Monte Civetta, the Lago di Àlleghe mirrors the spectacular peak and serves as a perfect spot for a picnic in warm weather. If you’re going by car, don’t miss the other lakes—some of them even allow water sports in the summer!

3. Sports. From skiing and snowboarding in the winter, to hiking, climbing or mountain-biking in the summer, the Dolomites provide an excellent landscape for sports. Make the most out of your day and go early in the morning to catch the best offers.

4. Food and wine. There are many villages stuffed between the peaks and rocks at the Dolomites. Falcade is one of them and seven restaurants in town are celebrating typical local food by offering special menus to couples. Meat and wild fruits, cheese from the Alps and fantastic wines—you’ll want to try it all!

Verona celebrates art… and wine!

Wine has always been a source of inspiration for artists around the world. Scottish novelist, Robert Louis Stevenson, said it loud and clear: “Wine is bottled poetry”.

Now, Verona honors this special relationship between wine and art with the exhibition ‘Arte e Vino‘, open to the public at il Palazzo della Gran Guardia until August 16th.

Visitors will discover how the enjoyment of wine has been depicted throughout the history of art by means of 184 masterpieces by both Italian and foreign artists, such as Titian, Rubens and Picasso.

And, being a celebration of wine, it can’t but end with a wine tasting session for the visitors, who will also enjoy some lovely views of L’Arena.

From Palazzo Victoria, we invite you to delight both your eyes and your palate in Verona!
